How sardines are cleaned

Here we explain how sardines are cleaned, Step by Step. First we must cut with scissors the head behind the pectoral fins, and then we will cut the ventral fin and the dorsal. The next step will be to remove the scales of the sardine with a knife or some other appropriate utensil, and once that is done we must remove the viscera to the sardine so that it is clean. The next step will be take out the two loins sticking the knife to the central spine and then we will wash them with water. Then we can remove the thorns of the belly with a knife and you can review the smaller ones with tweezers.

You will need to:
  • Sardines
  • Scissors
  • Knife
  • Scaler (optional)
  • Tweezers
  • Remove all the thorns to find none when eating the sardines.
